okay wow, so I’m still getting messages from non black women on sources from why I wrote that this symbol

image

is for black women only. what a surprise non-black women continue to distrust black women’s contribution to feminism and our knowledge of our own community. Black women know our own history and if you can’t trust that then you don’t trust us.

this is a picture of a member of the Third World Women’s Alliance, an alliance that goes back from the 1968 Black Women’s Caucus. 

image

her sign reads we represent black & third world womens, the most exploited & oppressed in the human race. third world women’s alliance her sign also features the symbol for black feminism.

this group used two primary symbol to represent black women’s pride and solidarity for other WOC, the first was a power fist inside the symbol for womanhood. And another with a fist clenching a gun inside the symbol for womanhood picture here :

image

and guess who was a founding member of the Third World Women’s Alliance? A Black women named Frances M Beal also known as Frances Beale. 

image

The Third World Women’s Alliance isn’t the only black feminist group to use this symbol but it is one of the most documented. 

calls for “sources” are almost always code for “I don’t trust you to know your own history unless it’s been verified by white people”

You know what’s crazy? How y’all can shun ‘colorless’ black celebrities within minutes and never speak of them again unless it’s to drag them but when a celebrity says something blatantly transmisogynistic y’all not only go on as if nothing ever happened but continue to support them through thick and thin?? Where are their call-outs? When do they get dragged on twitter for days? Or does it not matter when the black person getting shitted on is trans? 

Ummmmm are you serious? 

I’ve seen numerous tweets and posts addressing transmisogyny. 

Amiyah King, Janet Mock, Laverne Cox have all been attacked and I see a plethora of people drag those who talk shit about them.

ESPECIALLY on Twitter. And what’s even more interesting is that a lot of the people who are calling people out are cisgendered women like myself.

I am fully aware of trans women being brushed aside, abused, murdered, sexually assaulted, etc. And I don’t expect anyone to congratulate me on shit I’m expected to do. I’m not saying that trans women don’t get treated like shit or are often not cared for. I’m saying that this is a very real and shitty reality that we have to deal with.

 Black women, whether cis or trans, have always been expandable in our community. Let’s not act brand new here. Black twitter and tumblr have shit on all of us. 

I know that my voice most likely doesn’t matter to you. I’m just tired of seeing posts like this. It dismisses those of us who are actually active and inclusive.

If you’re a “nice guy” to a girl up until you realize she doesn’t want to date you, then go on about how she’s a cold shrew that friendzoned you and how no girls date nice guys, like, nah mate, girls do date nice guys. You just aren’t a nice guy. You’re a passive aggressive beta with internalized misogyny and a serious victim complex.

AMEN!

WHOA WHOA WHOA. excuse me.But the minimum wage is set for teenagers with first jobs/ college students TO GET EXPERIENCE. Because a higher paying job isn’t going to higher you unless ypu have experience. AND YOU GET THAT EXPERIENCE BY WORKING AT MINIMUM PAYING JOBS. and the higher paying jobs are harder jobs which is why they get more money. If you raise the minimum wage, then companies wont have the money to pay more employees so they look for the people with the most experience…So if companies can only higher people with experience and you dont have any because companies DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY YOU?? well then you are never going to get a job. And when the minimum wage goes up, the price of everything goes up.And then we have the minimum wage earners complaining again.So stop saying that the minimum wage needs to be raised because it doesnt.What needs to happen is we need a better economy and thanks to obama, thats not going to happen for a while because obama doesn’t know what hes doing.So if you want to make more money, get experience and a better paying job.

You’re a shitty economist buddy.
Less than 15% of minimum wage worker’s are teenagers (age 14-19), the rest are adults aged 20 and over (85.7%). So lets stop pretending that these jobs are meant for students. The economy is shit and unfortunately, people have to settle for low wages because the alternative often is unemployment.
Higher paying jobs doesn’t equate to ‘harder jobs’. Often, the higher a position is, the less labor you are required to do.
"And when the minimum wage goes up, the price of everything goes up."
Inflation doesn’t necessarily work that way. Obviously, you’re just regurgitating the bullshit theories conservatives spew out while disregarding the statistics and history that proves otherwise. But since you’re using that argument, why not raise the minimum wage with the rise of inflation? Or productivity even?
If we had raised the minimum wage with the rise of productivity since 1968, it would currently be $21.72. In other words, we are creating far more and producing more profit for corporations, while being paid for a third of what we use to.
What do you have to say about that?
And raising the minimum wage to $10.10 will raise 1.7 million families out of poverty and reduce the need for them to use public assistance, saving the federal government $7.6 billion per year. Would you say you’re you against that?
The current federal minimum wage is $7.25. In none of the 50 states is that enough money to pay the average rent for a 2-bedroom apartment. 
The minimum wage used to be able to keep a family of 3 above the poverty line. Now, the minimum wage can’t even keep a single parent working 40 hours a week, for an entire year without a single day off, above the poverty line.
When you raise the minimum wage, you’re putting more money into the pockets of the lower/working class. Their money is directly put back into the economy when the buy food, pay bills and generally spend their money. As oppose to higher paid people who have the luxury of saving their earnings. That means that businesses will generally make more money because the working class has more money to spend.
That’s my argument for raising the minimum wage, I would love to see your attempt to counter it.

"To stand there and have individuals literally inches from you, pointing their fingers, shouting obscenities at you, it’s stressful."

STLMPD Chief Sam Dotson

Source: “What police face during protests" accuses protests of being more dangerous for the police than the protesters.

Peaceful protesters have been tear gassed, shot with rubber bullets, arrested, tackled, hog tied, maced, had guns pointed at them, and so much more. They really wanna try and compare pointing fingers, name calling, and cameras in their faces to everything protesters have faced PLUS the fact that Mike Brown’s killer, Darren Wilson is still free and still on paid administrative leave after 69 days?!?

The Snoop Dogg/Iggy Azalea beef illuminates the intersectionality burdens that black feminists face when it comes to Hip Hop.

Either we’re forced to excuse Snoop’s misogynistic comments towards Iggy because we’re black, or we’re forced to defend Iggy because we’re women…when they’re both wrong.

And misogyny was never an issue in regards to any black female rappers, but when it’s a white female rapper, the world capes for her.

There’s levels to this.

They didn’t even get mad when Eminem was on that bitches this and bitches that stuff but Snoop all of a sudden must be stopped.

Feminist cancels lecture at USU after threat of mass shooting »

This is not criticism.  This is terrorism, just like the bomb threat that was called into the venue where she was going to get an award.

This is what is hiding among your concerns about “journalistic ethics,” Gamergate.  

I have no idea how or why anyone would threaten people’s lives for fucking video games.
